    Teacher Appreciation Week is around the corner. Please help our PTSA support Teacher Appreciation.  We have an amazing staff who support our students . Please show them your love.   

    The PTSA is looking forward to spending the week of May 2-6 showing our appreciation to the teachers and staff at NWCCA! If you would like to help by sending in a donation, here is the link to our sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4fa4a72caaf8c61-staff

    Meal Benefits Applications    

    Parents, please consider applying for meal benefits as soon as possible . By submitting a qualifying application, families will also support the district in qualifying for additional funds to support students and learning! Also, the NC Department of Health & Human Services is collecting student free and reduced lunch and attendance data from WCPSS to determine any  additional Pandemic Electronic Benefits (P-EBT) that will be issued in the coming months! By not applying for these meal benefits, you will miss the potential opportunity to receive direct P-EBT funds for your family!    

    Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June 2022 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for this extra education funding next school year. Also, this ensures your student is covered for the first few weeks of school next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits can be found at www.wcpss.net/meals. Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at MySchoolApps.com. Paper applications can be requested by calling 919-588-3535.

    What a wonderful spirit week! The kids celebrated each day. My favorite was “Anything but a Backpack Day.” We ended with a school wide pep rally on Friday. The kids narrowly beat the teachers in basketball. Our seniors received their caps and gowns. Thank you to all who participated and especially the SGA and Ms. Plant.

    Campus Clean up! We have over 25 people come out and work to clean up our campus. Parents and students. We weeded the bushes, removed trash from the parking lot and then mulched the entire area. A special thanks to our PTSA President Ms. Hutchinson. She and her husband provided tools and a “Gator” to move mulch. She also provided snacks. Thank you!

    It is Assistant Principal Appreciation Week. Please take a minute to thank Ms. Brothers for her hard work and thoughtfulness.
